FYI- The SORBS is badly broken. There is no reasonable way to contact a
human there or get delisted. It is widely believed that SORBS is a scam
intended to extract money from ISBs and small businesses, though I'm not
sure if that's true (any more, anyway) because they're so inaccessible
we haven't even gotten asked for money yet.
The bottom line is that we're unlikely to be removed from SORBS any time
soon, even though the spamming incident that triggered the listing was
ended shortly after it began, and we've made multiple attempts to delist.
FWIW, I knew this all years ago and forgot it, because SORBS has
descended into complete irrelevance - almost nobody uses it anymore. If
you can I'd suggest using other channels to suggest to the person you
were trying to email that s/he should complain to their ISP that SORBS
should not be used.
